COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vigneronne is a blending muscat grapes and lambic, the brewers and beer merchants produced the "druivenlambik" (grapes lambic). White grapes soaked in lambic. The fructose, which abounds in these fruits, enables us to make a beer which is more mellow than the Gueuze or the other fruit beers. The spontaneous fermentation, the ageing in the barrels for several years and the addition of grapes make it a distant cousin of certain white wines. Changed name from Druivenlambik in 1987.

First beer poured for my 28th birthday. What better way to reward yourself for making it another year on this planet than with Cantillon? Vigneronne pours a hazy golden orange, with a fingers of soapy looking white head. Nose is all muscat grapes and it is spectacular....probably the highlight of the beer for me. White wine and grape skin with some hints of lemon and just the slightest acetobacter. Muscat/white wine grapes arent as prominent in the flavor, but they are still one of the main themes. It’s focused particularly on the grape skin and lemony lactic acidtity. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low to moderate, good sharp acidity, and a moderate finish. Another great fruit lambic from Cantillon. Having had this a few times, I think I actually prefer it aged as opposed to fresh. It loses some of the gentle grape character as it ages, but it becomes incredibly more sour.

October 2013 bottling poured a deep golden color wit a coating of white foam that fell back to a ring on the glass. Aroma has a nice funky geuze, white grape, grape skins, house Cantillon funk, and mid range acidity. Mouth feel is medium light and the carbonation is in the lower range. Flavor shows some acidity but it is under control and balanced by the house funk. White grape plays in but adds surprisingly little sweetness though it helps to balance the whole thing.

Pours a hazy straw yellow with white head. Funk, tartness, and citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.

Luk_ (84) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle, 2014. Pours a pale gold with a quickly receding head. Aroma is classic Cantillon barnyard with fruity white grapes. Definite white grape sweetness and moderate (per Cantillon standards) buggy sourness. A very appochable lambic when drank fresh.

Alla spina al Red Bear Pub di Marghera. Schiuma lievissima, colore giallo ambrato opalescente, aroma acetico, floreale , vinoso, al palato corpo medio e bassa carbonazione, una complessa esplosione di sapori avviluppa tutte le papille gustative in un mélange di asprezza non eccessiva seguita dalla dolcezza dei malti con note di limone, vino, qualcosa di floreale, con un finale lungo e molto soddisfacente. Mi è piaciuta e spero di assaggiarla ancora.

Very nice oak and rose grape aroma. equal in each. The dry rose grape flavor with the added balance of sour lemon is wonderful. Very light champagne like carbonation. Great.

Tap at hops and pie. Clear yellow gold with a tiny white head. Aromas of tart citrus, oak, funk, light yeast and vinegar. Flavor is the same. Light bodied, dry end. Lingering tart citrus and funk.
